All Things Easter

All Things Easter

Being in an osteopathic medical school and attending undergrad where I did, I automatically like to think of things as “Spirit, Mind/Soul, Body” or “Spiritual, Emotional/Mental, Physical”. So why not Easter? Easter is pretty much a BIG deal. And it’s all about Life…especially the life that we can have through Jesus. (Warning: Lots of Clicking […]

Baby Steps, Bob!

Baby Steps, Bob!

When change happens TO me- it seems to happen suddenly. Last January there was one business week that went something like this. 1. Michael’s interview at The Church. 2. We found out that we were having an “Abigail”. 3. I had my medical school interview. 4. We closed on our first house. Talk about change. […]

Bounding Into Health

Death sucks. I’ve had people that were too close to me pass too early. And even when those who had lived a full life pass (like my Mama Kay who lived to be in her 100’s), it is still no fun. Disease sucks. I worked with breast cancer patients for two years…saw the good and […]

Productive

Productive

If you’re one of those “go with the flow”, “glass is half-full”, “I’ll get it done tomorrow” kind of people, you may not understand this. Opposite people (like me) will understand this completely.

Has God ever taken you on a journey that just doesn’t make sense sometimes? Yea… Starting this blog was kind of difficult for me, to be honest. I wasn’t sure how I felt about just “putting it all out there”—and running the risk of being labeled…well…all sorts of things like: hypocrite, liar, stupid, naïve, etc. […]

POST TEN! I thought I’d try to be clever—do something really awesome and celebratory for 10 posts…but come on. Maybe when I hit 100… Today, I will be visiting the beach—back in Egypt… …totally and completely in my mind. In reality, I will be getting a ridiculous amount of allergy shots. How many? Let’s just […]

Awe.

Awe.

“Awe (noun). a feeling of reverential respect mixed with fear or wonder:” Studying Neuroanatomy is pretty awful for me. Awful in the “very bad or unpleasant” sense, sometimes. But, many times, it blows me away how intricately we are created. Do you realize that there are tracts in your body specifically designated to help you […]

Be All There (Part Dos)

Be All There (Part Dos)

Yesterday didn’t start off the greatest. Baby girl woke up at 1 am throwing up. We gave her some Motrin to get her fever down, but it didn’t seem like anything we should take her in for. (To all those wondering, the stuffed kitty kat came out of the wash just fine.) Didn’t sleep much—and […]

And so it begins…

And so it begins…

It all started one day when yet another of my classmates asked me the question. “How do you do it?” I’ve stopped asking “What do you mean?” I know full and well what they mean. I am young, Married to a wonderful man who also happens to be a Worship Pastor, Mother to my beautiful […]
